Cat Cafe @ Myeong-Dong

Monday, 1 June 2015

In life, there are two types of people. People who love cats, and people who love dogs. Well, I'm the third kind of person, in which I'd rather just look at them rather than have one. However, if given the choice I'd rather have a cat though. They just be lazy all day and don't need to do much. Although I think my decision would actually depend on my mood that day... so I'm back to square one.

Had a quick lunch, and then headed to the cat cafe at Myeongdong. It's one of the most famous places where tourists go, so if you're there, it's actually worth going to have a look if you've never been to one of these places.

When you're there, there are certain things you have to take note, such as sanitizing your hands before touching the cats, making sure you don't wake them up from their sleep, no scaring them and basically nothing you'd do to an actual human being. The cats here are really pretty and are one of a kind. I guess that's why you pay to come in right? The cafe doesn't actually have an entry fee, but to have a seat you have to purchase a drink, which costs around 7,000W~11,000W depending on the kind of drink you get.

What a beauty


Cat maintenance (combing, claw clipping etc)

Apart from the drinks, you can buy certain cat food and cat treats that you will use to feed the cats, or in other words, "get them to play with you". The funny thing is, since these cats have been here for so long, seeing tourists and locals in and out with cat food, they've developed this knowledge not to play with people till they buy cat treats. What a great tactic. Anyhow, in order to have cats come to you and allow you to pet them, you first have to buy cat treats, starting at 2,000W ~ 5,000W.

There is a chart as well introducing all the different cats, their names, likes, dislikes...

So pretty.... look at it staring at you

The cats are fun to pet, but they're usually very lazy, going to lie down somewhere after eating, or going to eat more from other customers in the cafe. All in all, this is one of the best cat cafes in Seoul if you're planning to visit one. I'd recommend it if you're a cat lover too! Directions are at the end of this post.

The place is called Cat Cafe/Godabang
It's located at: 서울시 중구 명동2가 51-14 6층

Once you come out of exit 6, take a left turn and follow the street down.

One you see LANEIGE, take a left turn and walk around 100m

Once you see this, you're at it. Head up to the 6 floor and have fun!

Till next time~
